treatment after-care guidelines

SKN Sessions

Following your treatment, you may experience some redness, which usually subsides within 24 hours depending on what treatment you have received. As a general rule, your skin may feel tight and dry 3 days post-treatment. This is completely normal and part of the healing process. If we are treating congestion, it is normal for your skin to get worse before it gets better. Your skin will then improve throughout the treatments. It is important to keep your skin hydrated with regular moisturiser and to wear a broad-spectrum sun cream (SPF 30+).

Micro-needling

This has a slightly longer downtime due to the nature of the treatment, you may find your skin can be red for up to 48 hours. Make-up is to be avoided for up to 48 hours.

Laser Hair Removal

After laser hair removal, expect mild redness and potential sensitivity for a couple of days, followed by a gradual hair reduction in hair growth throughout your treatments.
